Home: About Me


The word sentience means the capacity to feel, perceive or experience subjectively.  We know that the key to performance isn't simply the tasks we undertake day to day.  The way we feel, how we respond to experiences and our thoughts contribute to how we behaviour and therefore how we thrive, not just at work but across all areas of life.

I am Lucy Gleeson and I created Sentience Wellbeing to bring psychology and wellbeing to the work place to enable us to be at our best and to thrive in whatever industry we work in.

In my early career I worked as a lecturer, and taught within the higher education system for several years, before moving to a global pharmaceutical company where I held leadership positions in Learning & Development and Sales. 

In all my years of work there has been a common thread - people and performance.  I am fascinated to see how some people thrive and achieve extraordinary things while others seem stuck and unable to move forward.  There are many individual facets that contribute to this difference but ultimately it is our own wellbeing and mindset that can hold us back.

My passion for personal growth, wellbeing, and human potential led to me to study for a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy. I now use this as the base for my work with organisations, teams and individuals, applying psychological theories and concepts as well as leadership models to create links between wellbeing and performance. 

I also has a private psychotherapy practice in Cookham, Berkshire. 

Contact us to find out more about us and we can work with you.

‘I’ve just been speaking with a line manager who was on yesterday’s webinar, and he was mega impressed with it.  He said the information was really useful and the presenter was very engaging.  He said he had done lots of line manager training recently, and this was the best thing he had done so far’.

"Lucy’s coaching has completely changed my perspective.  On my return to work after my second maternity leave, I came back feeling lost and unsure of my professional capabilities and worth.  Thanks to Lucy’s insight, gentle questions and supportive approach, I have regained my confidence, found purpose and taken control of my career again'.

"To begin with I didn’t really know what to expect from my sessions with Lucy but after an initial meeting she talked me through the process and what to except which really put me at ease. Lucy created a really supportive environment which gave me the opportunity to reflect. She supported me with meaningful information and helped me pull together a toolkit of exercises that I can use day to day. 

Having Lucy as an independent person to be able to share thoughts and feelings with in a safe environment really helped and her encouragement and insight enabled me to make changes that benefited me not only in my work environment but in all aspects of life."
